A terrestrial herb endemic to Ecuador, where it is known from a single collection made more than 120 years ago. The collection locale is unknown, as the label only mentions "in Andibus Ecuadorensibus". The lack of information does not allow for an effective evaluation of its threat category or mount field searches. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorian museums. Habitat destruction is the only known threat to the species.
